I live by the river on the wrong side of town
Nothing much to do here but listen to the sound
Of a train I'll never catch passin' me by
Of the muddy water drinkin' the tears that I cry

So I head you're comin' back with somebody else
Well, if I had the time, if I had a little help
Every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight
Every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight

I have to think of something, I just have to find a way
Before you cross that river, before I see your face
'Cause I can see your headlights and I can feel the pain
And nothing's gonna save me if I see you again
But if I could use this torch I carry to put it all to rights
